College Textbook

Not my favorite textbook to ever read as it is a bit dull, however very useful for the class I took.

Great overview

This is a very readable history of the Christian faith. If you are looking for a good overview of how the Christian faith developed and splintered this is the book. I would recommend as a starting point and then diving deeper on the subjects that interest you.


So this book came even faster than I imagined it would. It is in great condition and is just what I needed. It is great.

Useful and Accessible ... A Hidden Treasure

This is perhaps the best book I have seen for getting to grips with the **fundamentals** of Christian theology, history and tradition, from the Catholic perspective. When I was doing theology at university, I found it far more helpful than many other books. Simple without being simplistic, I felt it brought the most essential elements to the fore, in an exceptionally clear, useful and accessible way. There appear to be numerous much more well known books (e.g. McBrien's Catholicism)of a similar nature. I find it a shame that this very fine effort does not seem so readily available to people, like hidden treasure waiting to be discovered ...

A wealth of information from a critical but appreciative perspective

First, the other reviewer decided to pan the book based on the book using the terms BCE/CE rather than BC/AD in order to be more accessible in places to readers who are not Christian. Let that narrow-mindedness speak for the review. The book is a veritable wealth of information on Scripture and Christian history from a decidedly Catholic perspective. Each chapter is written by a national scholar in the field, with an eye to material being useful for entry level college students. Many of the chapters are engaging, replete with maps and art, and all are information rich. Anyone wanting a good introduction to the story of the God's interaction with the world from a Catholic Christian perspective will appreciate this book. I've taught with it many times and it has always been well-appreciated.
